Are You Treading Water or Are You Swimming?
We were all taught that if you learned to tread water, you’d never drown. I guess you’d stay afloat, but the question is for how long?
Learning to tread water is a survival method until someone comes to save you, but if no one does come, you will get tired and eventually drown. Learning to swim on the other hand will always get you closer to your destination, while still providing opportunity to be rescued.
As a little fish in the pond of big businesses, it’s easy to get stuck in old ways that are safe and familiar, and although there may be immediate comfort in that, your inactivity will inevitably keep you from moving forward.
So what is it that keeps you from learning to swim in your business?
Fear, hard work, impatience, insufficient knowledge, lack of coaching and leadership…
Whichever it is, get over it. Here are some tips:
1 - Put on your water wings and jump in
2 - Get a business coach that will guide you
3 - Find a mentor that you can learn from
4 - Take some courses and workshops
5 - Continue to read books to build you knowledge
6 - Attend networking events and conferences
7 - Look for opportunity to share your story with others
8 - Rid yourself of negative people and negative situations
9 - Have a business plan and stay focused on it
10 - Keep up with news and changing trends
Once you learn to swim, you’ll find yourself in new waters that are exciting and profitable.
Keep Swimming Little Fish!
